Did you see the GD perform with the Wall of Sound live?

I've heard good things from people that actually experienced this thing. Granted, there were some shows where it was giving them troubles and a big part of why they stopped with the concept was because the noise cancelling microphones removed too much from the vocals, but all in all seems like a great system. The SBDs are missing the way the system interacted with the hall and lots of the audiences from this era are extremely clappy and chatty, but you can just hear Jerry blasting beams of sound around those halls. Powerful, beautiful, and crystal clear. But honestly, this LIG is some fine psychedelia: http://www.archive.org/details/gd1974-07-19.sbd.miller.32634.sbeok.flac16

p.s. 12/31/72 is an incredible show - you are a lucky individual... that Truckin> Other One is... wow... real question here is... did you get bored of that jam? regardless if you enjoyed or not, that morning dew must have been a relief!

The phrase "fine psychedelia" drew me in here ... this should work ... something good coming from an "utter disappointment" thread!

I'm only up to Bobby McGee, if only co-workers did not insist on talking to me ... The Bobby McGee is high of the highest quality, however ...

Thanks, no problems with the hurricane, we were mainly in Pennsylvania, where there was no sign of a storm except a few vague clouds, and Connecticut, where it rained one day. Taking the teenager to look at colleges.

were you at Jerry Day? I went in 2007 and saw JGB there... great vibes and great music... they did an excellent Mission in the Rain and a really extended Deal to close off, during which I began to feel the effects of the magical brownie and ak-47 that my friends from the bus ride gifted me!

Hey DP--the guys in the cover band I speak of; they did see them thru 72--74, and all I can say is they never missed the wall. They only saw west coast shows, so I don't have any idea how many that would be with "it", but in any case, I used to ask them about it regularly, and it seemed to be more impressive in theory than practice...

Second hand gossip, I know...
